If you are already logged into a webinar and experience a problem (slides stop advancing, streaming audio stops/fails, etc.), please follow the steps below:
- Try clicking the “Refresh" button in your web browser. It looks like a circle with arrows.
- Clear the cache in your web browser. Then close your web browser completely. Open your web browser again and try logging into the event/archive again.
